The Stable Building - Choumert Road, London, SE15
Guide Price £1,275,000
Detached and uniquely different, The Stable Building is a beautifully set back house on the popular tree-lined Victorian street. Executed to exacting standards with high quality materials and finishes throughout the former Stables building is a fresh, low-maintenance offering of a flexible nature, which will cater well for families, work from homers and future-proofers alike.. The property has a large south-facing front garden that’s laid to lawn. A second outdoor space comes in the form of a super-private courtyard garden, which is beautifully visible from your entrance hall.
The hall space is quite the show-opener, with the impressive open-tread oak staircase and the double-height space having huge windows onto the courtyard area; almost giving you an entire wall of glass, and letting the outside in, it’s really the focal point of the project.
The large reception room is the perfect space to zone living and dining areas. Accessed via this room is a study which also benefits from a door to the garden – it would make a brilliant home office, treatment or teaching room. The beautifully designed kitchen is modern in design with white fitted units at wall and base level, new integrated appliances, and wooden counters. Wooden shelving detail and a large skylight are welcome features.
At one end of the room is a neat utility space/pantry. At the other, open double doors onto the courtyard garden.
Off the entrance hall on your right is the first of the property’s four bedrooms, with large en-suite wet room. This room could be used as a second work from home room if that suited you better. Upstairs, find three smart bedrooms, two of which are double-aspect. The master bedroom on the east side of the house has a slick en-suite shower room. The main bathroom is accessed off the landing. The bedroom at the west end of the house has built-in storage.
Lovely Choumert Road dissects Bellenden Road – you are minutes from the many shops and restaurants in this buzzing, trendy area. Artusi, Ganapati, Anderson’s, The Begging Bowl, Miss Tapas, Cafe Viva, The Montpelier and The Victoria Inn are all at hand. Rye Lane is only a little further for high street shops, markets, banks and Peckham Plex Cinema (films for a fiver), as well as Frank’s Bar and The Bussey Building and Copeland Park.
Peckham Rye Station is but a stones throw away, providing services to London Bridge and Victoria, Clapham Junction and Canada Water (for Canary Wharf) which make the commute or evening or weekend excursions a doddle.
Local green spaces include Warwick Gardens, Lettsom Gardens, Peckham Rye Park and Common and Ruskin Park. Local primary schools include The Belham, Bellenden, St. John’s & St Clement’s (C of E) and Goose Green. The Villa Nursery (2-7) is also local and well-liked, and the Dulwich independent schools are a short drive away.
